White collar crimes that drain the nation of precious foreign exchange is connected to the funding of international terrorism. The much-told Hollywood theme is retold in the Indian context with much needed technical wizadry.

Storyline

16 December, 1971 was the day when India won the war against Pakistan, and was also able to liberate Bangla Desh from Pakistan's rule. Although the ruling dictator of Pakistan surrendered unconditionally to India, some of the hard-lined Pakistani soldiers were bitter and angry at the surrender, as they wanted to continue fighting the Indians until their last breath. They retreated in silent and later came together to form their own groups of Jihaadi soldiers to carry out terrorists attacks against neighboring India. One of them was Dost Khan (Gulshan Grover). Although the Indian authorities were aware of Dost Khan's terrorist activities, they were unable to apprehend him as he kept changing disguises, and always kept one step ahead of the authorities. This matter was assigned to Chief of Revenue Intelligence Vir Vijay singh (Danny Denzongpa) and his team of Vikram (Milind Soman), Victor (Sushant Singh), and Sheeba (Dipanita Sharma).

This is how patriotism should be
5 October 2002 | by (Brampton, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I didn't have very high expectations from the film. But the very first scene got me a little curious watching an Indian officer using the computer to file some sort of a report. Our films always depict the Indian law enforcing agencies as primeval in their thinking, capability and resources. This film shatters all three myths. The film itself seems to be the main protagonist rather than any particular character. The story is very very interesting, especially the whole havala transaction. Danny and Gulshan Grover give good performances as do Milind Soman and Sushant Singh. I found debutante Dipannita Sharma to be a revelation for being in the thick of things rath er than just being thick in the head as most Hindi film heroines are. The 'Dil Mera Ek Tara' track is superb and nicely integrated into the film. The only drawback I can think of is the whole Aditi Govitrikar angle to the plot. That should have either not been there or at least rewritten. But Mani Shankar presents the real ideal patriotism: practical and intelligent. A well-deserved 9/10.
